The Spy Next Door Reviews
01.14.10 by REELZ
If you've seen the trailer for this Jackie Chan family comedy, the following reviews should come as no surprise. At all.
"...entertaining in spots but too obviously low-budget."
— Daniel Eagan, Hollywood Reporter
"Chan’s new all-ages vehicle is smooth like oatmeal. It's hard to imagine anyone being offended, except fans of good comedy."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"It's a sad day for Jackie Chan fans when the action-comedy star is reduced to a vehicle as lame as The Spy Next Door."
— Lael Lowenstein, Variety
"...immediately forgettable family entertainment, suitable for release only in the dung-heap month of January."
— Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"Wast[es] no time setting a precedent for 2010 ineptness..."
— Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
